Eye scratch update

Went to the ER and they didn't get me in until 11:30 pm and we went in at 7:00pm. Then they gave me a prescription for antibacterial eye drops and a Percoset for the pain. Here's my question now. Is it safe to take Percoset when pregnant? I wouldn't think so, but I told them I suspect pregnancy and they still gave it to me.

  • If you told them that you suspect that you are pregnant.. do they give you a pregnancy test? They should have if you mentioned that just to be sure.

    Did you ask them if it was ok to take if you are pregnant, did they brush it off or acknowledge that you might be pregnant?

  • They didn't give me a pregnancy test. They asked if there was a chance I was pregnant and I said "I actually think I am. Why?"and the nurse said "We just have to ask in case you need an x-ray." That was the last I heard of it.

  • I already took it because I was so tired and in so much pain, it didn't occur to me until this morning that percocet is a narcotic. They didn't give me a prescription for it, just one while I was there. I have my hubby getting tylenol for pain now.

  • if unsure call your doctor did you tell them at the ER you were pregnant? Doesn't seem like they'd give you something that wasn't safe to take while pregnant if you told them
